Leah Peters Shares Why Business Success and Personal Fitness Go Hand in Hand

“Successful business owners understand the importance of consistency when it comes to growing a thriving company, yet so many leave money on the table because they under-prioritize their health. If how you do one thing is how you do everything, then creating consistency in your wellness routine should be just as vital as your professional actions. Allow me to explain.

I see so many incredible service and product providers gain weight, lose sleep, and ultimately lose themselves over stressful decisions, uncertain events, and complicated launches. One of the main consequences of this vicious cycle is that this lack of structure relating to personal health will eventually seep into other areas of their lives, whether that be conflict in personal relationships, lack of fulfillment, or struggles in your career.

The flip side of this scenario is one where physical development and business development dance together in harmony. When business owners treat themselves and their bodies with the highest level of respect, others follow suit. The gift of consistent wellness practice is not one-sided either; as leaders show up in total health (mental, emotional, and physical), the vibrational energy rises for every employee, customer, and client involved. Honoring yourself has a ripple effect that acts as a magnet for new opportunities.”


You can expand your capital without expanding your waistline or inching closer to burnout

“Having not only business goals, but also health goals trains your mind to be multi-faceted, disciplined, and persistent. When you step into your physical power, the mind cannot help but be influenced positively. Imagine how it would feel to operate from a state of peak physical wellness…how would that inspire others?

In the same way that a relationship must balance elements of masculine and feminine, i.e., hustle and play, so must your work relationship. Consider your daily work the masculine, and your daily self-care the feminine. When one becomes too overpowered or under-cared for, disbalance occurs. 

Becoming more conscious of your wellness routine may look like scheduling a few personal training sessions a week, switching from takeout to a meal prep service, or committing to daily meditation practice. While this process may look different for every entrepreneur, one thing is consistent: you must have boundaries with how you use your energy, where it goes and, create habits that honor the body. When a business owner continuously serves without first serving themselves, the energy of the engagement suffers.”


Prioritizing self-care and fitness is not selfish, it is service

“Research shows that exercise enhances cognition, creativity, memory, and problem-solving. If you are a business owner spending your day glued to your desk, you’re missing out on incredible downloads, epiphanies, and insights that come from prolonged physical activity. Try not to think of time spent exercising as time away from work, because taking time to work on YOU will attract more aligned clients, ready to commit big time because they see the mental, physical, and emotional success that you embody. When creativity or compassion runs dry, there is no faster way to elevate your energy state than movement.”


Fitness is not just physical, it’s also mental

Never underestimate the impact your physical well-being has on all areas of your life, including business. Implementing a structured fitness routine ignites alignment and synergy that positively influences your ability to show up as an entrepreneur or business professional.
